A few photographs around Staines Central including road vehicle trailers, Maunsell coach as office, goods shed, signals, BRCW type 3.
I have added some of the photographs of wagons in the yards - quite an interesting variety - some of my earliest photographs.Bob Essery had written about going to your local yard and studying the wagons, so I did.
Staines had 3 different freight yards. On the north side of the approach from London was a mileage yard - see the Rectanks. (Converted to carriage sidings in 1974) Connected to it by its own line beneath the bridge and behind the up platform was the large wood goods shed and coach as an office. On the down side and inside the curve towards Ascot was the larger open yard, in the 1960s largely used for steel and containers. No coal traffic in my days, this was handled at Ashford, the next station down the line.
